Grant Writing

26 03 2009

I’m starting to explore grants as a funding option.

My labmate Stuart has won several grants, so I asked him where I might start my search. Stuart says:

 

SBIR is probably the most accessible program. this site indexes the different agencies.

your stuff will have to fit into one of the topics of a solicitation though. this isnt the kind of thing you can do as an individual either. your company has to be registered with d&b and on the gov’t contractor database at ccr.gov.

I’ve won 2 of these through nasa, both times i proposed with a team of 3 or 4 people who’ve done substantial prior work for nasa. a proposal usually takes 100-150 man hours to put together.

I’m sure there are other routes but sbir is definitely the most straightforward.

 

In the meantime, if you find this entertaining:

Ever thought of setting up a paypal button? Probably wouldn’t provide all the funding you need but it might help with some of the smaller stuff.

I got as far as a donate button on the repository:

I haven’t figured how to add that button on wordpress.com (which doesn’t support plugins I discovered yesterday)

Done. I added a pledgie donate link on right sidebar.

It looks like, to do PayPal, you need to install the AdSense Deluxe WordPress plugin, then instert the button code into the AdSense block. A bit convoluted.
